    I've got about two bushels of 35mm film vials. I should be able to make a down payment on a house if I peddle these on feebay.

    Have a look at his completed auctions and you'll see how successful he is(n't):

    Red prices = no sale.

    "new vintage collectible"
    Why do I never meet these shitheads when I'm wandering around dark alleys? Couldn't I meet just one before I die? Please?

    I bet he saw the price on some metal ones and thought these were the same thing... But I wouldn't even pay $10 a pair for metal ones.

    This caught my attention as I purchased one locally as a spare last week: http://tinyurl.com/9n4m2gp
    He really has no idea what he is handling ("shutter speed coupling ring"???) or how to cost it.
    Often available for $10.00.

    okay I couldn't help messaging this guy. here is the conversation thus far:

    me: are these vintage or new reproductions? I ask because $9.99 each seems pretty cheap.

    seller: the film that was on the spools dated back around 1994-1997 I dont know if you would consider that vintage or not.

    me: as far as I know until about 1992 or so they were really well made but
    sometime after then they started using cheaper plastic and making them
    to less exacting tolerances, so if these are from 1994-1997 then
    probably $9.99 apiece is reasonable. darn - thought I could get a
    sweet deal Still, even the newer ones are a bit tough to come by
    these days it seems.
